  1. The X-Wing community is down-right spoiled compared to Armada players. FFG might as well have just stuck an image of a middle finger on the last presentation where they said that.
  2. Same team. VR isn't necessary for me, but the HOTAS will definitely be on the way.
  3. I recommend anyone looking to get into HOTAS or VR wait until compatibility is released. The devs have said they will release that information when its ready. Don't drop a bunch of cash on things that might not work with the game.
  4. Much of this is readily answered. The gameplay mechanics show in the trailer are clearly well above BF lite, and power management is discussed in decent detail.
  5. The designers did specify that which HOTAS systems it will support isn’t released yet, I believe in the polygon interview.
  6. Or not, if the trailer is accurate. Only two columns for Tie Interceptor. Left is the X-Wing.
  7. Looks like cross-platform game-play which is sweet.
  8. Honestly...Fallen Order was great and BF2 (ground combat) is still so much fun, with all the updates they made. I play BF2 regularly with a X-Wing friend and it’s just a great time. Probably the most improved game I’ve ever been played - release to final update. I'm excited to see the trailer for this.
  9. I don't feel bad for FFG at all. If they're outsourcing app development to another company, its on them to detail what they're looking for. I've been involved in app development as a user for military applications, and we've always defined our requirements, quite strictly, with the company developing the product. Along the way there are a number of usability checks, tests, updates, to ensure the product we receive is adequate. Its on our project managers to ensure the contractor is held to the standards we set, and on our project managers to ensure that the end product meets our intent. The app sucks, but it sucks in its overall design intent. Everything about it seems form over function - which is a 10 minute conversation at the start of development. Honestly, they had plenty of examples from 1.0 of applications that met community intent exceedingly well. All they had to do was build off the concepts they knew worked for the majority of X-Wing players, and they didn't start with that baseline unless the contracted developer wildly swung a different direction with no oversight from the company. Also - user research. Its a thing. I don't feel sorry for FFG that they received, released, and failed to update a sub-par product.
  10. I'm with @theBitterFig on this one. Given the strength of the Jedi or clones it will be supporting and highly likely ability to take cannons/missiles based on what we've seen to provide forward punch (and a 270 arc, roughly) there's no way they start in the 30s. They could get there if they aren't successful but I expect them to be conservatively priced. And there is minimal if any overlap to the ARC in role from what we've seen.

JF is attempting to somehow achieve greatness by pushing Odd Ball to the championship in a defensive, Jedi-fueled, Padme rocking Republic squad.

Aaron's bringing three Hyenas and a palp Infiltrator to the fight, while Agata's list centers on the stoic Upsilon, the impressively consistent Quickdraw and Backdraft, and a 45 point generic TIE/FO!
